News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Davis is day-to-day with a hamstring and might not be available for Week 3 against Seattle. Taywan Taylor and Jonnu Smith both stepped up to play roles in their second game, so this pass offense is getting more crowded. Davis is just an end-of-the-bench hold right now.
General News (Wed Sep 20): has already been ruled out for Sunday's game because of a strained hamstring. Head coach Mike Mularkey made the announcement after practice. Davis missed the entire preseason with a hamstring injury, and then he re-aggravated it again on Sunday in Jacksonville. "We are trying to get him past this so we are not dealing with this in November," Mularkey said. "Anytime you have to watch and can't play, it is very frustrating. He is so competitive, and he thinks he is letting us down. He is not letting anybody down. I know he is frustrated and disappointed he can't play."
General News (Tue Sep 19): is considered day-to-day because of a hamstring injury, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.
Week 3: vs Seattle Seahawks
FBG says: Tough matchup. The Titans passing attack, and offense as a whole, started out very sluggish last week against a tough Jaguars secondary. Marcus Mariota looked sloppy in the first half, but he really turned it around on the other side of halftime, completing six of nine passes for 135 yards and a touchdown. Delanie Walker continues to showcase his connection with Mariota as he led the team in receiving yards for a second week in a row (while also adding a career-first rushing touchdown last week). Rishard Matthews made a couple of big plays on one drive but was otherwise quiet. Corey Davis was ineffective for three-quarters before leaving with a hamstring injury similar to what he was dealing with throughout training camp. He would later return to help with run-blocking but is still listed as day-to-day. The stats did not look eye-popping for this passing offense last week, but much of that was due to the game script as the Titans centered their offense around the run during the second half to protect their lead. The Seahawks pass defense has allowed only 5.9 yards per pass attempt in their first two games, including Week 1 against Aaron Rodgers. The sample is small, but this is one of the most feared secondaries in the league with some serious talent at most positions. Bobby Wagner had Brian Hoyer's number last week as he read Hoyer like a book, defending two passes while intercepting one. Both safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor continue to look solid this year in defending over the top. Delanie Walker will have a tough time finding space in the middle against these linebackers and safeties, Corey Davis likely will not be 100%, and Rishard Matthews should see a lot of Richard Sherman.

Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 2 vs JAX (3 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis hauled in only one catch for four yards as he battled with the Jaguars talented secondary for most of this game. Davis was targeted on a deep ball on the Titans last drive to close out the first half, but the throw was just slightly off. Davis was forced to exit in the third quarter after aggravating his hamstring, but he later returned to help out with run blocking in the fourth quarter. Keep an eye on his status throughout practice this week, as Davis struggled with his hamstring throughout preseason this year.
2017 Week 1 vs OAK (10 / 6 / 69 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis had a very solid outing in his regular season debut, hauling in six receptions for 69 yards. Davis certainly did not look like he had been dealing with a hamstring injury, as he appeared very quick off the line and was routinely finding space against the Raiders cornerbacks. Davis shined on his first catch of the game, hauling in a well-thrown ball over the head of a defender while falling backwardsˇgood for 23 yards, his longest reception of the day. Davis led the team in targets with 10 total, however, four of those came on the Titans last drive with Marcus Mariota targeting him on four consecutive plays. While Davis was not on the field as much as the likes of Rishard Matthews or Delanie Walker, expect for him to quickly turn into a significant contributor in this offense.
